    Abbas Kiarostami: Image Maker

    July 7 – August 30, 2007

    “We are living in the age of Kiarostami, but don’t yet know it.”—Werner Herzog

    One of the most critically acclaimed and influential filmmakers of the past twenty-five years, Iranian director Abbas Kiarostami has captivated Western audiences with works of deceptive simplicity and indefinable poetry. We are proud to present this retrospective of his films, from early documentaries through his celebrated “Koker trilogy” and recent masterworks.


    7:30 Rugs, Roads, and Palaces: Short Films by Abbas Kiarostami

    A chance to see Kiarostami’s rare 1977 film on the restoration of one of the Shah’s residencies, Jahan-Nama Palace (Iran, 1977); a “tour” of a unique Persian carpet, Rug (Iran, 2006); Birth of Light (Japan, 1997), filmed in Japan; and the estimable Roads of Kiarostami (Iran, 2005), a poetic meditation on photography, beauty, and destruction.
